UPDATED: Man found dead after two-alarm house fire breaks out in McLean

(Updated at 10:30 a.m.) A man was found dead in a McLean house where a two-alarm fire broke out this morning (Monday).

Several Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department units were dispatched at 9:15 a.m. to the house fire on Ridgeview Circle near Rosamora Court, according to scanner traffic on Open MHz.

“Crews are currently working to get the fire under control,” the FCFRD said.

Per the scanner, 911 received a call around 9:24 a.m. from someone who advised their ex-husband may be inside the house, and at 9:40 a.m., firefighters reported finding a victim on the second floor.

Since the incident is ongoing, a fire department spokesperson said they couldn’t yet confirm whether there were any occupants. However, the Fairfax County Police Department says a man was found dead, and its detectives were called to assist FCFRD with the investigation.

Fire units from Alexandria, Falls Church and Arlington were also spotted on the scene.
